Corporate Event Venue Of The Year (Hotels) — Metropolitan At The 9

Just steps away from the RNC, NBA Finals, and World Series, the Metropolitan at the 9 had no problem through much of 2016 filling its 21,000 square feet of event space. A huge milestone was the successful execution and March 10 launch of the hotel’s third-floor Rotunda as a unique meeting space for all corporate events. The Rotunda, which originally opened for business in 1908 as the new home of the Cleveland Trust Company, can accommodate up to 300 individuals. Heading into the Republican National Convention the biggest obstacle was the uncertainty of what to expect. “We executed extreme and successful safe group events during the RNC for high-profile guests,” General Manager Kenny Didier says. “We made sure to the best of our ability that each and every guest during the RNC felt safe and left with a smile on their face.” Every space was used, including the Alex Theater, Vault, Mint Ballroom, Rotunda, Ledger Bar, Adega’s private dining rooms, and Art Gallery. “The Republican National Convention tested the hotel and our staff, but with preparation and teamwork we ended the week with a successful outcome and provided exceptional service,” Didier says. The 9 also catered to its guests by developing a partnership with ITA Audio Visual Solutions to provide state-of-the-art technology. The partnership increased the number of corporate events that required high-service technology demands. “With the launch of this partnership we had more to offer companies who were looking at corporate venue spaces outside of The 9,” Didier says. “By being able to provide onsite assistance, our venues could meet all of the clients’ needs.”

Runner-ups: Hilton Garden Inn Cleveland East; Sawmill Creek Resort.
